Description

“Like other non-alcoholic beverage leaders, including CSDs and dairy milk, the category is losing share to other beverage types that offer flavor variety and functional innovation, some with lower sugar/calorie totals. The importance of diversifying consumption occasions can be seen in the growth of snack-friendly smoothies and decline of 100% juice, which is often pigeonholed for breakfast.”
- Beth Bloom, Senior Food & Drink Analyst

  • Category stagnation continues
